8 Billion People On Earth - What Now?

We mark this year's World Population Day with a discussion on what the statistics mean, now that we're reaching the 8 billion mark by the end of this year. Then, we look at how different countries are trying to boost or control their population numbers, and the effects that policies can have like this on a personal and societal level.
